2016 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

This guy was a wasted pick in 2015. His season started with two short games (4/59 and 5/33) before going down with an ankle injury that cost him about four full games. When Davante returned to the starting lineup, the Packers tried to get him the ball in Weeks 8, 9, and 10. He finished with 20 catches for 209 yards with 36 targets. The telling sign for his possible failure came in Week 9 when Davante only caught 10 of his 21 targets while gaining only 7.9 yards per catch. Over the last eight games of the season, Adams had fewer than 55 yards receiving in each game while averaging only 6.1 targets per game. His lack of explosiveness was a clear issue plus it looked like defenses figured out how to defend him. In his two seasons at Fresno State, he caught 233 passes for 3031 yards and 38 touchdowns. He has an elite resume with high upside in all areas of the game. His hands and leaping ability will help him win contested balls at the next level. His strength needs to improve. Adams doesn't have an elite first step, which may hurt him early in his career when he is trying to create separation in pass patterns. This year Davante will have a weaker opportunity with Nelson and Cobb in the starting lineup and Fantasy owners have pretty much started to put nails in his coffin (73rd ranked WR in the early draft season). Adams has a lot to prove even with a slight progression in his second season in the league (50/83/1 on 94 targets). His success in training camp and preseason would go a long ways in improving his value. He's become only a flier if you are willing to take the Lambeau Leap of Faith.
